Feat. Skerik, Thomas Marriott, RL Heyer, Tim Kennedy, Ian Sheridan, and Annie Jantzer
Happy Orchestra, produced by drummer Tarik Abouzied, is a band that puts smiles on faces and lights fires under feet. Its members are drawn from some of the Northwest’s most highly regarded funk, jazz, and soul bands including McTuff, Skerik’s Bandalabra, Richie Aldente, and more. The band combines instrumental and compositional firepower with a determined effort at crafting an intensely happy musical experience.
Richie Aldente - www.richiealdente.com
With an intelligent fusion of dance beats, yacht rock, disco and contemporary hip-hop, Richie Aldente creates ferociously infectious music that is smartly crafted but unabashedly fun-loving. While the sound hints of influences from the 70’s and 80’s, it is decidedly modern, appealing to a new generation of listeners who were born long after the genres that inspired it.
